    I was thinking about getting a AJA Ki Pro or a Pro Mini to record videos from my cable box.

    I see the HDMI in and out. Will it work or will it not?

    Thanks!

    No it will not work over HDMI, do the the HDCP rules for HDMI

    Your cable box most likely has a YUV output that is not copy protected. You can record this with a KiPro. I was looking for the same capability but went with the $475 BlackMagic h264 Recorder.
